Grab has partnered global payments technology company, Adyen, to extend the capabilities of its GrabPay platform in Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, and the Philippines.
Since Adyen supports 250 payment methods globally, Grab's customers will be able to pay via traditional cards and, over time, country-specific payment methods.
In addition, business travelers in the region can tabulate their ride spending through the Grab for Work portal. They can also automatically pay for their employees' rides through the use of corporate cards.
"As part of Grab's drive to make ride-hailing even safer, easier and more accessible to everyone in Southeast Asia, providing trusted, seamless mobile payments is crucial for the overall customer experience. We wanted a partner who could support a variety of traditional and alternative payment methods to support our growth across the region. Adyen fits the bill and we are excited at now being able to offer our passengers even more payment options when they pay through GrabPay," said Joel Yarbrough, Head of Payments & Commerce Product at Grab, in a press release.
